To be honest, I quite dislike the default Github plugin for Octopress. While it works and is nice, It’s not at all what I would want on a blog.
So I decided to make my own one, based on the Google Plus plugin that already existed. It was also a nice learning experience to create and install a plugin.
Recently I stopped using Apache’s dav_svn, and moved to svn+ssh for my Subversion server which I store personal code on. However, it made the checkout command much, much bulkier to type.
I have to work with Adobe’s Business Catalyst, its not a bad system, for quick and nasty, simple websites. But it can get unwieldy and irritating very very quickly in more advanced, or even just thorough projects
